You could go for the flair 58. It gives identical coffee from prosumer machines. I'd suggest getting a temp controlled pour over kettle so that you have the flexibility of going for espresso or v60 if you feel like it.

Things to take note.
1. Invest in a decent grinder. There are good hand grinders out there but I recently tested the 58espresso electric conical and it was a pleasant experience close to the niche zero for me (at a fraction of the cost). Flat bur grinders are great but a pain to clean, and "single" dose flat grinders always have been high retention in my experience.
2. Never buy pre-ground coffee
3. There is such thing as "too fresh". Make sure you use "freshly roasted" coffee around 1-2 weeks after roasting date.
4. Use a scale when doing espresso

good advice
1.2.3.4. all guilty hahaha, cheap ceramic grinder, 3 bags agad ng blue mountain(daw) ng ground coffee, ordered some beans now, very cheap scale.

learning along the way, never thought coffee could be so complex & interesting to learn, maybe coz I plan to have my own backyard Kapihan? I bet by now saturated na ang market sa atin ng ganito just like computer/ internet shops noon

I'm not really trying to be into coffee since I still consider myself a functional coffee drinker but it does make the little things better. Considering I'm usually on fasting, coffee is basically my food source for 80% of my day. I still use a super automatic (dinamica) for my daily workday coffee since it is fast and simple in making a triple americano. I only use prosumer machines on the weekends.

Worst thing about learning to make better coffee is that most coffee shops now really taste like crap and you'll start looking for at least specialty coffee shops to get your coffee fix when out of the house.

How do you take your coffee?
I think i've graduated from 3in1 & instant coffee unless on the go or in a hurry
The art of making your own coffee be it pour over, percolation or espresso from beans to finish is really satisfying pero noon I find it tooo cumbersome just to have coffee. I guess with great age comes great taste....hehehe   

BTW aside from the normal coffee you guys take how many shots of espresso do you consume in a day?
is there such as too much coffee lol

On a weekday. Typically americano (45g/120g triple espresso and 210ml water).

On a weekend I take an 18g/36g espresso and an americano 18g/36g espresso with 120ml water

The thing about coffee equipment like espresso machines and grinders, the cost goes up exponentially for a linear improvement in output.

I miss doing WFH because now I cannot brew my own coffee. I used to hand grind using just my shopee-bought grinder and the difference against pre-ground is noticeable. Tiis ako sa 3in1 ngayon.

Anong coffee beans yung parang lasang-lupa pero masarap. Ganyan kasi yung sa tropical hut, wala kami mahanap na kapareho.

Ano naman yung nutty na parang chocolate na? Yung parang sa kopiroti?

^^^Try to get darker roasted for that stronger coffee taste.

One of my grinders is a cheap generic N600 clone from Shopee. I bought it for about 1800. I later replaced the flat burrs with stainless steel ones bought from AliExpress for about 1200 with free shipping.

this coffee thing is getting addictive when it comes to experimenting on the different type of equipment, coffee beans & brew method, a few of my friends went to "The Machines" so I've got an additional Manual coffee maker in my arsenal

got the handpresso(using capsules) & 1zpresso. Got me a better scale & a powered grinder, the cheap manual grinder is a workout to use!


Tried the finest setting on the grinder that almost powder like to use in the 1zpresso, Big mistake! water can't pass through & splash out by the sides instead





but the 1zpresso makes a better espresso "like" than the Staresso, gotta do more experiments with grind size. Another friend is letting go his Barsetto Tripresso & I hope I won't turn out to be like them that went from manual to the "Machines" lol

 Kaya nga madaming pop-up coffee shops sa atin either by bike or by car & some really makes good coffee kasi mga former barista yung iba sa dating work nila.

It's also good that a lot of us now have access to these coffee making products na from beans to finished product. It's just up to your imagination on the type of recipe you want for your Kape!

I like my iced coffee espresso extracted from pure Arabica beans with an equal amount of fresh milk and sweetened with Stevia.

Subjective kasi ang sarap ng Kape sa isang tao.

Merong may gustong mapait, meron yung maasim, yung iba naman gusto ng matamis o creamy na malinamnam at yung iba naman gusto yung nakukuha yung finnest ground sa mga dila nila & there's Starbucks coffee. My coffee preference could be awful for you or vice versa. Ang importante we enjoy whatever coffee we make

....maliban sa 3in1 hehehe jk lang, may na try ako na 3in1 na may volcano yata yung name nya, diko sure kung indonesia o malaysia pero masarap yung mix nya

went to a friends house & passed by a Starbucks & decided to try an espresso - bloody ell, my homemade one was even better!

there was nothing but bitterness, i guess can't blame those teen baristas they have or could just be servers.

Nakabasa ako na pwede daw yung malamig or room temp na tubig sa espresso kaya lang dapat sa manual espresso maker like the flair or something like that. Which could mean that maraming umuinom ng espresso na dipa naka try kung espresso machine ang gagamitin dahil mainit na tubig ang buga noon.

I gave it a try with my 1zpresso Y3.3 but was a little skeptical at ayaw ko namang sayangin  yung 15g of beans so medyo ininit ko ng konti ang tubig to about 40C. 15g in 30g out dapat but i overshoot to 35g hehehe

to my surprise it tasted good, it had more body & the flavours where more enhanced, continued to pump the rest of the brew that was about 60g more, pero tubig na ang lasa nya. Medium roast Tanzania Beans.

Will try next time using room temp water or really cold water.

Beans? Locally grown?

sa mga gumagamit ng V60 or other pour overs, anong style or recipe ang ginagamit nyo?
nag iiba ba ang lasa ng kape nyo pag iniba nyo yung style ng pag buhos nyo?

now doing single pour style touted by Tales coffee, madali lang kasi sya hehehe
